Forecasts

Mountain Rock (15/8), Fort Montagu (11/4), Knockmaole Boy (9/2), Canny Tom (5/1), L'andana (11/1), Comber Mill (20/1), Annie Irish (40/1), Maudlin Magdalen (50/1), Winterberry (50/1), Mystic Embarr (66/1), Benefit Of Love (66/1), Time In Boston (66/1)

Verdict

Little in the way of any significant strength in this maiden hurdle, so the placed form shown by the likes of stablemates Knockmaole Boy and Canny Tom could prove good enough. Both L'andana and Mountain Rock are fairly moderate, but also hold claims at this lowly level. However, for tonight it could pay to side with Tramore bumper winner FORT MONTAGU who really doesn't need to improve at all from his hurdles debut behind Uradel at Listowel earlier in the month to take all of the beating.
  1. Fort Montagu
  2. Knockmaole Boy
  3. Mountain Rock
